Higher Apprenticeships

Higher Apprenticeships are a great alternative to university.

Many apprenticeships now offer training up to degree level, plus you will receive training (both on- and off-the-job), a salary and the opportunity to really start moving your career forward.

All without paying hefty tuition fees or running up student debts.

Higher Apprenticeships

Higher Apprenticeships offer a work-based learning programme and lead to the following nationally recognised qualifications:
• Level 4 and 5 – equivalent to a higher education certificate, higher education diploma or a foundation degree or
• Level 6 – equivalent to a bachelor degree

Higher Apprenticeships are currently available in the following sectors: Business & IT, Construction, Creative, media & the arts, Customer service & retail, Energy, Engineering & electrical, Finance, Health & care, Hospitality & travel, Manufacturing, processing & logistics, Public services and Vehicles & transport.

Over 40 different subjects are currently covered, representing hundreds of job roles.

Degree Apprenticeships

Degree Apprenticeships are designed by industry to bring together the very best in higher and vocational education. Apprentices achieve a full Bachelor’s or Master’s degree as a core component of the apprenticeship.

On a Degree Apprenticeship, you will be tested on your academic learning, as well as your wider skills and ability to do a job. You will be assessed either using a fully-integrated degree co-designed by employers and higher education institutions, or using a degree plus a separate end-test of your professional competence.

The Government is committed to expanding the number, range and quality of apprenticeships that offer training to degree level and many more are currently being developed and will be available from September 2016.

 

The apprenticeships listed below are all available at Higher or Degree level.
